Upon discovering the young swan on her street in the village of Holme on Spalding Moor, the resident was able to usher the bird into the safety of her garden.
She then contacted Yorkshire Swan & Wildlife Rescue Hospital who were able to rescue the swan, and transport it to the sanctuary for the evening.
Yorkshire Swan & Wildlife Rescue Hospital shared the heartwarming story of the rescue on their Facebook page.
In the comments section, the woman who found the swan wrote: “I hope he makes a full recovery from his trauma tonight although I miss him - he looked so much at home in my garden”.
